Athletics: Holmes tries to keep fire burning for track return

Kelly Holmes returns to a British track today for the first time since her Olympic triumphs - although to call it her first British appearance would hardly be appropriate.

TELEVISION A Very Important Pennis (BBC2) The long-term appeal of the BBC's celebrity stalker may not be as big as some of his victims' egos. By Jasper Rees

In A Very Important Pennis, the carrot-topped geek who accosts celebs with scaldingly rude questions was released on Hollywood.

Autumn is definitively here now that Baywatch, Gladiators, The Generation Game, Challenge Anneka and lots of movies with the suffix 2 are back in full employ.

IT'S ten o'clock. 'I get a lot of my business by pulling things round,' states Andy, setting up his big umbrella flash gun. 'I pull things round and help people out of the shit. You've got to do it. They're good to me. I'm good to them. It's only right.'

Saturday Night: Watch with mother

'DON'T you just hate that?' said Ruth, turning her thighs to pummel her cellulite in the jets of the Jacuzzi. 'All those prepubescent hormones.' The fit young couple kissing under the warm shower were oblivious to our jealous stares.

FILM / Ripping Yarn: Life's a beach: As Big Wednesday breaks again, John Lyttle traces the history of surf culture from the beach to the silver screen, and provides a guide to surf slang

Check it out. The early Sixties, the acrid smell of sun-tan lotion, the roar of the waves, the clamour of the Beach Boys and Jan and Dean pouring out of the automobile radio, chirping surf 'n' turf songs of sun, sea, sex and the American way:
